There are many ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has many practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you can forward the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active whenever you are making contact with clients or partners. If you have two similar sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could forward the traffic to the other website so that you can prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first website and improve it.
